About a month ago, the Belgian-American Chamber of Commerce (BelCham) invited us to participate in the 6th "BelCham Entrepreneurship Award" competition. The "BelCham Entrepreneurship Awards" honor both Belgian and American small and medium-size enterprises in the U.S. with powerful ventures, promising business plans or proven success stories. A high-profile jury selects entrepreneurs who have demonstrated market insight, ability to seize a unique opportunity and endurance in capturing a share of the U.S. market.
This week, we received a "Congratulations" mail:
This year's applicant pool was extremely competitive, and I am pleased to inform you that our panel of judges has selected your company as one of three finalists for the Most Promising Company Award. Congratulations!
In other words: iText will be in the top 3 in the category "Most Promising Company of the Year 2014"!
BelCham will make the final announcement on the night of its Annual Gala on October 8th. You can register to attend this event too.
